Aerotech, Inc and Micronix USA have formed a strategic partnership to offer complementary precision motion products to the industrial and research markets. The collaboration expands the capabilities of each company, allowing for further industry applications that require powerful, easy-to-use nanopositioning products. Together, the companies are now offering a wider range of stages, controllers, drives and software for positioning in the most advanced applications.
With Aerotech's premium product portfolio, Micronix will be able to address applications in core markets more comprehensively. Micronix will be able to utilise Aerotech's industry-leading control platform to address complex motion control needs. In addition, Aerotech's advanced flexure-based piezo nanopositioners complement the Micronix portfolio of miniature, long-travel piezo stages. This new partnership further cements the customer-centric approach of both firms to provide comprehensive motion control systems.
Furthermore, the modular approach of Micronix regarding miniature nanopositioning stages extends Aerotech's product portfolio in nanopositioning and enables customers to address additional automation applications. This strategic partnership aligns with Aerotech's core strategy of allowing customers to easily control all types of motion equipment from one control platform. By using one control platform, customers reduce costs due to simplified integration and increased throughput from low-latency coordination between axes.
